Senate Dems Sing Christmas Carols On The Senate Floor After Passing Funding Bill

Plenty of Democratic Senators celebrated the passing of an eight-week funding invoice by singing Christmas carols on the Senate flooring late Wednesday night time.

Sens Heitkamp, Warner, Donnelly, Coons, Smith, Hirono and Gillibrand broke into track, belting out such favorites as “Strolling In a Winter [Wonder]Land,” “Go Inform It On the Mountain,” and “The Christmas Music,” based on Fox Information’ Chad Pergram.

Additionally they reportedly sang “The First Noel,” “Little Drummer Boy,” “Silent Evening,” “Rudolph,” “Oh, Come All Ye Trustworthy” and “O Holy Evening.”

Hillary Clinton’s 2016 operating mate, Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine, obtained in on the motion as properly.

Bloomberg reporter Alex Ruoff defined the phenomenon, saying that “older folks will sing in case you compel them to stay in a confined area collectively.”

One common Christmas track was lacking from their repertoire, nonetheless. “Child, It’s Chilly Exterior” has confronted fairly a little bit of backlash not too long ago — however it’s unclear whether or not the current criticism is the explanation why they opted to not sing it.
